Today one of the biggest rivalries in soccer will renew itself when Chelsea and Liverpool square off at Wembley Stadium in London, England at 12:15 p.m. EDT for the FA Cup. Liverpool can win their eighth cup, Chelsea their seventh – both of these franchises have a storied past.
Since you’re probably not lucky enough to attend the game or even find it on television, you may have assumed you were doomed to reading about it later. Nay. You can live stream the game online and watch every second of the FA cup from the comfort of your desk chair, bed, whatever. All you need is a computer. You do have a computer, right? (You’re reading this, aren’t you?)
Fox Soccer 2 Go will be live streaming the game as well as a number of other matches this weekend, so this is a link you’ll definitely want to bookmark now and really forever if you’re a soccer fan.
Both teams should want this game bad (obviously). On top of being long time rivals, these two clubs had a pretty tough season. Here’s more form Bleacher Report:

There are few things scarier than ticked off soccer hooligans, so there’s some extra incentive for each club. Losing might result in their respective cities being burned down in blind fury. I know I wouldn’t want to be responsible for that.
ESPN notes that for Chelsea, the player to watch is Didier Drogba. For Liverpool, it’s Luis Suarez. The key battle, they note, will be between Roberto Di Matteo and Kenny Dalglish.
It should be a good one. I’ll see you on the Internet. I mean at Wembley. I’ll see you at Wembley.
Here are some FA Cup moments to hold you over until the match:
